Idn Play is the world’s biggest Asian poker network. The network is well-known to invest in bringing players unique products like live dealer poker, playing from the comfort of one’s own home and more.
The network has grown rapidly in recent years and now counts more than 200 skins. However, most of them are strictly local and are not open to English-speaking players. It’s possible to get around this issue by using a VPN service.
The IDNPlay network software is a little old-fashioned and is not very smooth. The client doesn’t support HM/PT (although we will develop it for your hand converter!) and only has a browser version. This means that the player experience is a bit laggy, although it still provides all necessary functional options for comfortable play.
It should be mentioned that the IDNPlay network has a lot of strange rules and regulations. In some cases, they are even contradictory. For example, the network allows legal multi-accounting but doesn’t allow collusion between players. Another issue is the fact that in cash games, IDNoker network takes a set rake of 3%, regardless of the stakes.
The IDNPlay website is licensed by the Philippines’ Offshore Gaming Licensing Department and displays a Random Number Generator certificate from bmm Testlabs. In addition, the network is regulated by the Philippines’ gaming authority, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation. The site also claims to employ an international team of experts. Nevertheless, this claim is difficult to validate because the company doesn’t publish its licenses and certificates publicly.
